Eureka Flag was a defining event in Australian history- Uprising in Ballarat Victoria in 1854. Symbol of rebellion against authority at the extreme left or extreme right of the political spectrum.
Not everybody likes new and shiny, especially when your origin is from the country. Most can relate to the weathered iron and rusty covered out sheds and house roofs that have seen many years of extreme weather conditions of the Australian outback. This is an iconic structure that can be found on most properties, having an heritage appeal to most Australians.
